Surgery on ailing Great Dane yields 43 ½ socks

DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital

A 3-year-old Great Dane was miserable, retching and vomiting, when his owners rushed him to DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital in Portland, Ore. X-rays showed a stomach full of "a large quantity of foreign material." Nearly two hours of surgery later, Dr. Ashley Magee said the dog had consumed 43½ socks. Animal hospital spokeswoman Shawna Harch said it's perhaps the strangest case in the hospital's history. Harch says the owners aren't available for comment but she confirms the dog is alive. No word on what he's eaten lately.
